I was reading one of Dala's Harlen Ellison books, but I lost it. I have literally no idea where it is. I can't find it anywhere around the house, it's not in my car, and I've looked all over work. It's like a magical book gnome had picked it up, thumbed through it a bit, and decided it was a book worth going into their magical book gnome pouch. The question is, what about that book could appeal to the gnome? Is it the variety of stories and writing styles Ellison has in that collection? Does he, sharing a similar cynicism towards humanity, feel a connection with the author? Or does he just have a friend who is a huge fan of fiction in general that he thinks will appreciate this book as a gift?
Honestly, I don't know. To be fair, the answer could be anything. Those book gnomes are a flighty bunch.
I'm looking forward to getting my hands on Issue 3 of "The Street Tiger." I'm gonna call the comic shop tomorrow and see if it's in. If so, I'll get two copies of it plus another copy of issue one and two because I have a friend who I think will enjoy the fuck out of it.
I'm going to the art museum with a friend today. They have a metric asston of books in their gift shop. If I get something from there, I'll be sure to share what it is on here. Maybe it'll be a book about textiles or glass blowing . . . who knows?
